right, t.j., president obama has been talking about this back-up plan. he's using the power of his bully pulpit to pressure congress to get something done. the basic message is, if they can't come up with a compromise, which is what leaders reid and mcconnell are working on now, they should at least put his proposal up for a vote. his proposal would include a number of things including extended the bush era tax cuts letting the tax cuts expire for the wealthiest americans. that is a big sticking point for americans. also extending on unemployment. here is what president obama had to say on that point on "meet the press." take a listen. >> i was modestly optimistic yesterday but we don't yet see an agreement. now the pressure is on congress to produce. if they don't, what i have said is that in the senate, we should go ahead and introduce legislation that would make sure middle class taxes stay where they are. there should be an up and down vote. everybody should have the right to vote on it. if republicans don't like it, vote no. i think there's a majority support to make sure they are h

three days to go before the fiscal cliff when tax heights and spending cuts kick in. president obama and congressional leaders are meeting at the white house right now trying to figure out a way to avoid it. negotiation have been under way for about an hour. steve handelsman joins us. so far no deal? >> i'm checking. so far the meeting continues, which could be a bad sign, can it? sources here on the hill say in today's meeting president obama planned to be kind of tough, figuring that he has gotten the advantage back to the extent anybody has the advantage this close to the cliff and that he'll push hi original demand, the tack rates rise on income over a quarter million dollars. it's a positive sign, the first meeting since mid-november of the four congressional leaders, democrats and republicans at the white house. called by president obama, house speaker jane boehner, the key figure. >> the fact that he's come back and the four of them are at the table means to me we could come up with some kind of agreement. >> reporter: both sides want a deal to avoid tax hikes that could cost
of those details right that people can buy into the show. barack obama is not watching the show because it's a brilliant portrayal of the c.i.a. it gets enough of the details what it feels like to be in those situations. i have no idea why i like the show -- the think it's less about details. michael described it as it's not a palemic and i think audiences smell propaganda but if you can introduce the complexity of what they do. "24" was not about a good choice and bad choice but the better of two bad choices. if there was a formula of "24" that would have been it. and i think these people saw and president obama sees as well there is something about the presentation of the complexity of some of the things that people who are charged with these jobs have to deal with. writing it and imagining it makes me glad it's not my job just imagining how tough some of these decisions must be makes you grateful. >> the verse that we show in frost nixon "the queen" and that is how much responsibility you take with that, especially when art itself is working in metaphors. when people ask me about there
clinton, barack obama all said that it was an individual right. 75% of the american people thought it was an individual right including those liberal politicians thought it was. other than getting rid of the d.c. law and the chicago law what difference did it make? >> guest: that's interesting. to me that as a surprise because a lot of gun control but it said tougher with of those decisions that there would probably be a tsunami i think was the word the was used of challenges to gun control regulations. well, they're have been some, but there's certainly not in a tidal wave of them and they haven't mostly succeeded here in the district. the past and decided on a new set of regulations the still band the assault weapons and make it necessary you have to show that you know how to use a gun and can store it safely and have to register it and so on, and the -- there is a challenge to that that i don't think has been resolved yet. >> host: i know of at least a couple hundred lawsuits in the country and they move slowly but still almost every one of the has upheld the law. >> guest: it d

was coming from ghana, and agents noticed that her suitcase seemed quite heavy. >>> right now at 6:30, president obama says there needs to be immediate agents to avoid the fiscal cliff. the president held a news conference just before 6:00 this evening. he says he's optimistic an agreement can still be reached. this afternoon mr. obama said the meeting was good and constructive. >> the one thing the american people should not have to wait and see is some sort of action. if we don't see an agreement between the two leaders in the senate, i expect a bill to go on the floor and i've asked senator reid to do this, put a bill on the floor that makes sure taxes on middle-class families don't go up, unemployment insurance is still available, and that lays the groundwork then for additional deficit reduction and economic growth steps that we can take in the new year, but let's not miss this deadline. that's the bare minimum we should be able to get done. >>> senate leaders say they hope to reach a compromise that could be presented to lawmakers by sunday, a little more than 24 hours before
you know, a conference call to the both of agree with mr. obama when he said, we can't tolerate this any re. he's right. but we are tolerating so much that we should not in this country. should we tolerate the murders of almost 500 people in one city over 01 your time frame? preserve our national grief for 20 children and six adults slaughtered in a matter of minutes last friday. should there be as well a presidential presence in multi religion prayer vigil in chicago perhaps as well a speech by the present to the nation. and please don't misunderstand me. i applaud the president's sense of words and the time he shared with the families of the citizens of the town yesterday to my but he would also urge reflexion and consideration of the facts when we now them and take into account the fact that we do know. chicago right now is the murder capital of this country. those killings in chicago have risen to 20 percent of the past year. up 20%. despite the lmost always on mentioned fact that chicago has one of the toughest gun-control laws of almost any city in this country. the presid
americans but key disagreements on eptitlesments and tax rate thresh finds remain. president obama's original plan called for increasing taxes on families earning more than $250,000 now $400,000 could be a number on the negotiating table. >> the $400,000 level seems to me to be with about right. that represents about the top 1% of income earners in the country and is they got knee% of the growth and there is some flexibility there. >> reporter: the republicans say the u.s. is not facing's revenue problem. >> i feel like i'm a lifeguard and we have to save as many people from drowning and higher taxes as we can. >> reporter: in the weekly address to the nation, president obama urged congress to do something. >> we can't afford a politically self-inflicted wound to our economy. >> reporter: congress will try to find compromise. >> i am still optimistic and i think we can avert this and there is enough common sense to come together and get it solved. >> reporter: a combination will kick in on january 1st. if no deal is made, president obama will press congress to vote on a plan c, one

'm disappointed in obama that he is not doing something quickly to relieve our stress. i'm on unemployment right now and the hard thing about finding a job these days, one day you hear about companies hiring. the next day you hear about another company laying off 300 people. walmart has been laying off people every year since 1990's and those people got great resumes. that is our competition. yes, i'm on food stamps and unemployment and it is a scary proposition. i don't want to be here. i go in a to a place three times a year to get help with my electric. i have to sit there from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the morning. i'm so grateful and when i do get a job, with the schooling now, i'm going into the medical field. i hope i can put back. >> that's gail. last call is going to be froms we in south carolina on the democrats line. s we, go ahead. >> well, glad to be here. the other caller called in doing the talking points. they don't have a taxing problem we have a spemmedsing problem. spending problems are because of unpaid spending which was brought about by the republican party. look, barack o
is right but to do in it a way that doesn't offend those people. remember, president obama famously said at a fund-raiser in the 2008 come pain that he wasn't doing well in pennsylvania because of people that cling to guns and religion. >> right. james, you know, don't offend gun owners piece jumped out at all three of us here today. 58% in a new poll said they want gun safety and there is a lot of interest in that that jumps from 42% a year ago but i don't think that the democrats are being offensive toward gun owners at all. the nra makes it seem like -- they fearmonger toward that idea but i think we need to not be offensive to those who have been killed and will be in the future by gun violence that can be -- and the nra leadership battles against even the most simple common sensical responses to this massive problem. >> and the white house certainly going to push. the president is going to talk about guns in his state of the union address next month. and my piece lays out as he does that, he can call for certain gun safety things. there's a lot that polls well, a lot that could argu
? >> there seems to be a growing consensus or perception that, unlike past democratic president, president obama has not left a ideological format of what it means to be a democrat. there is -- there has been a fear that with the party going so big and republicans moving to the right, there could be a battle for the soul of the party in the next four or eight years. do you see a post-obama age -- a civil war-like occasion happening? >> we just pushed the post-obama age off by four years. [laughter] >> i know. even in the next four years? >> what this president stands for -- i talked earlier about the fight we had. i was reading a book some of you may have read that was excellent about clarence darrow. he talked about some of the fights in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. during the gilded age and the progressive era. so much of the dialogue -- there were differences, but the fundamental philosophical debate was very much the same way we had in this election. do we believe that the strength of our country and the economy comes from a broad number of people, the middle class, those working
are skeptical. >> the american people have a right to be very upset with this congress. >> reporter: president obama has invited nancy pelosi, john boehner, mitch mcconnell and harry reid to the white house this afternoon for a fiscal cliff summit. >> here we are. five days from the new year, and we might finally start talking. >> reporter: today's white house meeting might be the last chance to come to an agreement. that's because it takes time for a bill to work its way through both chambers of congress. >> i don't know time-wise how it can happen now. >> reporter: under senate rules the onlyway a bill could come through the you woulds in time is if every senator agrees not to slow the progress. the house will be back here sunday night giving them just more than 24 hours to vote on any bill the senate works out. outside the beltway, don will be watching. >> everybody's kind of in a wait and see and finger crossed perspective right now. >> reporter: since 1930, this is only the fifth time congress has worked after christmas. tara mergener, for cbs news, washington. >>> time right now is 6:07
